Nationwide study finds US meat and poultry is widely contaminated
Date:4/15/2011

ost important drugs that we have to treat Staph infections; but when Staph are resistant to three, four, five or even nine different antibiotics like we saw in this study that leaves physicians few options," Dr. Price said.

"The emergence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria including Staph remains a major challenge in clinical medicine," said Paul S. Keim, Ph.D., Director of TGen's Pathogen Genomics Division and Director of the Center for Microbial Genetics and Genomics at Northern Arizona University (NAU).

"This study shows that much of our meat and poultry is contaminated with multidrug-resistant Staph. Now we need to determine what this means in terms of risk to the consumer," said Dr. Keim, a co-author of the paper.

The U.S. government routinely surveys retail meat and poultry for four types of drug-resistant bacteria, but S. aureus is not among them. The paper suggests that a more comprehensive inspection program is needed.

S. aureus can cause a range of illnesses from minor skin infections to life-threatening diseases, such as pneumonia, endocarditis and sepsis.
